scarf sunday - polka dotted gypsy woman

Pants- Gap (Thrifted); Purse- Thrifted; Top- Spoof; Scarf- Vintage; Heels- Spring; Bracelets- Zellers; Nail Polish- Vintage by Revlon
My outfit's polka dots may be subtle but they're present so I'm linking up to Silverstyle's Trending Through the Decades: Polka Dots Challenge (psst if you haven't already checked out her blog, head on over, you won't be disappointed!) I bought this dramatically sleeved blouse for $7 brand-new at a quirky little boutique named Spoof on my recent trip to Toronto.  I paired it with these pale pink thrifted Gap trousers and burgundy coloured peep toed heels that I've had for years.  I am a huge fan of scarves, I gravitate towards the scarves and belts immediately while thrifting or vintage shopping.  I wore this outfit to a family luncheon a couple of weeks ago with the scarf tied around my purse's strap but I also really like the scarf on my head reminiscent of a gypsy (although if you've watched the strangely addictive reality show My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding you'll know what I mean when I say I'm wearing way too much clothing and not enough glitz and glam for them!)  

Check out my other polka dotted looks here, here and here!

  3. You are too cute, my dear! I love that shirt. It looks great with those pale pink pants. I love that you put that bandana on your head, for some reason I think that's particularly awesome. As always, you look great.
